addbib [-a] [-p promptfile] database
When addbib starts up, answering y to the initial Instructions? prompt yields directions. Typing n (or RETURN) skips the directions. addbib then prompts for various bibliographic fields, reads responses from the terminal, and sends output records to database. A null response (just RETURN) means to leave out that field. A `−' (minus sign) means to go back to the previous field. A trailing backslash allows a field to be continued on the next line. The repeating Continue? prompt allows the user either to resume by typing y (or RETURN), to quit the current session by typing n or q, or to edit database with any system editor (see vi(1), ex(1), ed(1)).
The following options are supported:
The most common key-letters and their meanings are given below. addbib insulates you from these key-letters, since it gives you prompts in English, but if you edit the bibliography file later on, you will need to know this information.
Except for A, each field should be given just once. Only relevant fields should be supplied.
